The meeting assumes political significance as it is the first public meeting after the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) decided to go national by renaming itself as BRS and also because leaders of different opposition parties — BRS, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Samajwadi Party and the Left — would be seen together.

BRS president and Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao and the visiting leaders would on Wednesday go to the Lord Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple at Yadadri near Hyderabad which has been renovated on a grand scale by the state government, before proceeding to Khammam.

At Khammam, they would attend the launch of the second phase of ‘Kanti Velugu’, the Telangana government’s eye screening programme, before taking part in the public meeting, BRS sources said.
